Lessology Jar Challenge

Hello Everybody!

I hope everybody is having a great weekend!  This weekend I finished my altered jar for the Lessology Jars of Cuteness Challenge #5.

This was a really fun project to do.  I present...Daddy's Swear Jar.  Every time a bad word slips out, a quarter is deposited into the jar!  The jar is a Vlastc pickle jar and is my upcycled item.  Please scroll down because there are many angles to this jar that you must see!


This is the top of the jar.  There is a slit in the angry man's mouth wear the money goes.


 This is turned clockwise.  It's a lot of fun using extra exclamation points, number signs, stars, question marks, and ampersands.  I also included bubbles with angry words. :)


Turned again.

 Turned again.


Last turn back to the front.  The angry men are clip art from Microsoft.com.  I just printed them in color on my printer.


I used my Exacto knife to cut the slit for the coins.  This angry man is glued to the jar opening.  I used a light layer of Glossy Accents.


I just put a little glue on the ring of the jar.


The label was probably the most challenging part to this project.  It took me 3 times to get it straight!  I used the 5 inch Xron machine so that the label would stay on the jar.  I had to use a dissolving agent to get it off 2 of those times :)  If you have any questions, just let me know!


Here is my bottle before the transformation.


Until next time my friends...no swear words!  They cost a quarter!
